And here goes nothin!

So among everything else going on, I am at a daily struggle on trying to lose weight. I had a baby on November of 2010, so I let this be my excuse for a long time, and now, there are none.

I have decided the only way to hold myself accountable is to tell the world about it, so that is what I am going to do. I am going to talk about my daily struggles, weigh in every week and talk about my progress AND what I am doing to lose and/or maintain the weight that I do lose. So here is me, putting it out there.

April 9, 2012

So today is officially it. The day I say I am going to really start trying to lose it. I weighed in at 184 lbs (this would be 9 lbs heavier than I weighed on Thanksgiving), so already a downer. I had my Ideal Protein shake for breakfast (mixed with coffee) and the nasty tasting Tomato Basil Soup (another Ideal Protein product) for lunch. Then for dinner I had a chicken breast and some Alfredo noodles and sauce (not the best for me, but at this point I had had 200 calories and was STARVING). So we will see what tomorrow brings.


  1. I know how hard the journey you are starting is. I weighed 261 in Dec 2010 and I lost 43 pounds and then found out I was pregnant again. So I am now starting all over again. Trying to stop the bad habits I got into while pregnant.
    So good luck. Have you tried finding weight loss blog challenges? that is what helped me.
    Sorry I forgot about the link to the shabby apple sign ups. Here is the direct link to the form. I also fixed my post. Thanks for letting me know

  2. Good for you! I just recently started my weightloss journey. Started at 181 and now I'm down to 166. You should look into food combining rules. It has to do with how your body digests food. The basic rule is to never eat protein and starches in the same meal, and eat veggies all day long!
